Professor Fernanda Petersen at the Department of Oral Biology (UiO) has been awarded, together with her partners, a large grant from the Olav Thon Foundation. The grant was given the research project: «Born in the twilight of antibiotics: fighting antimicrobial resistance in preterm infants».
Molecules that are more often known for their potential to cause cancer may have a new, health-promoting role. Scientists are now discovering how these «radicals» may be used to prevent infections and promote the long-term success of dental implants.
Biomaterials hosts an open seminar on bone-anchored implants and the ramifications of increasing antimicrobial resistance on implant-related infections.
Department of Oral Biology was recently awarded a significant grant to another project managed by Professor Fernanda Petersen.
